|EMPLOYEE RESOURCES, INC. is a local EAP corporation which has many local contracts with employers in the Western New York area.
The EAP work of EMPLOYEE RESOURCES began back in 1985. We started out doing work as a small organization serving local employers and employees. Our provision of service was so well received by both labor and management that soon we were asked to provide more and more services that later became what we are now – a full-service Employee Assistance Program. Over the past decade, with all of the changes in the mental health and substance abuse field, we emerged as very visible advocates for our contract companies. Our first major contract was with General Motors – acting as the professional extension of their EAP. Today, we are still very proud of our continued association with the UAW/General Motors. In addition, we provide EAP services to several large, medium, and small private corporations as well as school districts, hospitals, towns and counties. We also provide EAP services for several multi-national companies as subcontractors for other national EAPs.
What sets EMPLOYEE RESOURCES apart from most EAPs is that we are completely independent of any insurance company or of any treatment provider. This way we have no inherent conflicts of interest. Since we are not an arm of an insurance/managed care company we are able to truly advocate for an employee’s right to treatment – both level of care and length of stay, without having to serve another master. Since we are not an arm of a treatment center/clinic/hospital/or provider group, our EAP does not exist solely as a financial means to make self referrals. At EMPLOYEE RESOURCES, we never self refer. .
Our EAP services include assessment/brief therapy/referral. The number of sessions differ with each contract depending upon the need of the employer. Our work involves referral and case management either to community resources and/or to providers who are part of the preferred provider list for the individual's health insurance plan. As part our EAP contracts, we make thorough clinical on-site visits to all of our referral sources, becoming aware of any program development and staff or administrative changes, ensuring continued quality care. Since we are a local corporation, we are familiar with all of the community resources, public and private, which enables us to enjoy an excellent working relationship with our referral sources.
As EMPLOYEE RESOURCES expands, we will be providing quality EAP services regionally, statewide, and nationally.
